Book Review of The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy

We must start by telling you, that we have been followers of Darren Hardy. We read his magazine Success, faithfully each month and have the Success CD's in our car for constant personal growth.

You would expect by the title that this book would be about how exactly compound interest works. But in fact, Darren Hardy very effectively illustrates the way a financial principle may be used to one's life to have same results.

The lesson of The Compound Effect is that the routines we create, when compounded over long periods of time, form habits. These habits can lead to positive or negative results. Something as simple as eating a cookie a day or watching a certain amount of TV every day, when compounded over years can add up to a significant sum. For example, choosing to read a little more each day over watching TV, in one year's time this could equal several books. Many of us know, but Darren Hardy reminds us in the book that cutting out just 125 calories a day when applied over 31 months, equates to over 33 pounds lost in the typical person.

The book breaks down our everyday life into a tiny series of choices. It can be introduced in the same way, little instances of different people in all of all ages. It reminds us that our way of life move at high speeds with little for self-reflection. Hence, the importance of getting the little things right - reading through (or listening to) good and informative books, exercising, etc. We acquire immediate and indirect rewards, as they have a compound effect.

This book reminds us that it is the little initiatives, done frequently over time that provide us a direct impact that compounds as time passes.

Until the next time Scott & Heidi
